The project Camerata Mediolanense took concrete form in 1994. It gathered some friends in Milan (Mediolanense = from Mediolanum, the ancient name for Milan), who were all involved in the underground music scene. It was conceived as a real musical "camerata", which casts a look at the Italian past and at the same time is deeply rooted in today's European reality. In fact, the main features of Camerata Mediolanense's musical language are: a percussive background, particularly evident during their live performances, which comes out thanks to the use of a non-conventional set of instruments; parallel to this, the band is doing a research on pure melodiousness, thanks also to the academical studies of some of its members.
